There’s still over 13 months to go before the 2016 presidential election on Tuesday, November 8, but Kanye West‘s Super PAC has already dropped two advertisements for 2020. They’re not official, of course — nothing a Super PAC does can be influenced, moderated or approved by a candidate. Even so, they actually exist. These are real.
The rapper announced his intention to run for president in 2020 at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, adding more fuel to the already raging fire that is the 2016 election cycle. For despite the current season’s already contentious atmosphere, West decided 2020 was the way to go. So do the people behind Yeezus 2020, a Super PAC established after the VMAs announcement.
On Monday, the group posted two campaign videos for West’s run in 2020. The first is more of a general advertisement, as it combines footage of his initial announcement with additional audio and stock clips. Add in a few textual graphics based on the rapper’s words and eureka! A campaign ad is born. The second, however, combs deeper into the visual and aural history of West’s many quotable quotes.
Check out the clips below, via Yeezus 2020. Here’s the first one:
